Jason Day has played this event before and is one of the most talented players in the field, so he makes for a quality pick in this week's contests on DraftKings.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
It's amazing how many players in this range, roughly 85th on the FedEx list and lower, played well in the fall, and did very little during the 2017 portion of the season. Kim is no exception as his best finish came in the fall where he posted a T3 at the Safeway Open. It's important to point out that guys who build their resumes during the fall, generally aren't much help for fantasy players that start their season in January. They may end up retaining their card for the next season, but that's of no help when you need guys to earn checks in July. That said, Kim did show improvement from his rookie season, but not nearly enough to warrant a salary cap selection this season.
Kim's rookie season probably didn't go quite as he'd hoped, but with his card secured via the points list, he's surely satisfied. Much like many guys like that make enough points, but not enough money to crack the top-125, Kim make plenty of cuts, but didn't have enough high-end finishes. Kim posted four top-25s, but no top-10s last season and that is something he'll have to improve upon if he's to keep his card for next year. Kim is a decent salary cap selection, only because his price is low and he has full privileges for the upcoming season. In draft leagues, he may go undrafted.
